An Exploration of the Lives of InsectsBook - 1995
O'Toole, a natural science expert, introduces the lay reader to the miraculous design and communication systems which characterize insects; how they cooperate in groups; their reproductive lives; and their habitats, ranging from desert to arctic tundra, land to sea. He also demonstrates the vital role insects play in the ecology of the planet. More than 250 color photographs make the book a coffee table item as well as a comprehensive text. Though marketed as a "companion to the PBS Nature mini-series," the text is outstanding in and of itself. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
